In her practice Malaika integrates Japanese Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy and other manual therapies, as well as her knowledge and experience from Physical Therapy.
The sessions are individually tailored and typically begin with a base of acupuncture treatment in order to balance and relax a patients' deep systems, plus addressing the primary patient issues. This is followed by Craniosacral Therapy or other "hands-on" treatment to continue to address connective tissue/muscular level imbalances.
Malaika appreciates this layering of therapies for their ability to enable patients to mobilize and heal a wide range of issues, even several issues simultaneously. Manual therapy on its own, or acupressure treatment is also possible, depending on patient preferences and/or sensitivities.
"Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture" is also offered, it is a system for the direct and natural treatment of wrinkles and other facial issues with tiny acupuncture needles while receiving a regular acupuncture treatment. A series of treatments is recommended, although results usually clearly seen with the first treatment!
Malaika also has a long history of movement practices (gymnastics, dance, tai chi, qi gong and yoga). She brings this experience to her acupuncture practice through the safe encouragement of activities for her patients, and through the understanding of athletes and their specific issues.
Session of 60-70 minutes, cost $100
Facial acupuncture treatment and manual-only treatments, cost $120
